To kickstart your new fitness regime, here are 5 exercises you should do!
You may be keen to lose some ounces of weight and look fit and fine in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Routine physical activity is central to life-long health and well-being.
To jump-start your new fitness regimen, here are the five exercises you should do for a healthy lifestyle:
What we do every time, is also a good exercise at the same time. Try to walk at a brisk pace for at least 30 minutes in most days of the week. If your schedule is tight, split up the walking for the entire day into 10-minute blocks. By doing this, our glute muscles get active, which are notoriously weak.
To focus on stretching your chest muscles, try this exercise. Here, your feet will be under your hips with your knees slightly bent. Hinge forward from your hips, keeping your back flat and core braced. Lift up your elbows and bring them high and wide. Stop the elbows at shoulder height before carefully lowering back down
To do this exercise, stand with feet hip-width or slightly wider, and toes slightly turned out. Keep your chest lifted and inhale to lower and exhale to rise. Do ensure that your knees are going towards your toes and not too far from them.
This exercise helps you to strengthen your shoulder muscles. To perform this exercise, stand with legs shoulder-width apart and hold a pair of dumbbells down by your sides. Then bend your arms at the elbows, lift your elbows out to the sides to shoulder height. After that, lower back your arms down and repeat the same steps above.
Yes, you heard that right! What we do every time, is also a good exercise at the same time. Try to walk at a brisk pace for at least 30 minutes in most days of the week. If your schedule is tight, split up the walking for the entire day into 10-minute blocks. By doing this, our glute muscles get active, which are notoriously weak.
Considered as a core exercise, our shoulders, glutes, triceps, calves and chest muscles all get active when our entire body is undergoing a rigorous physical activity. An important thing is to make sure that you breathe and keep your stomach pulled in.
